The Foreword 

THE task to which we have dedicated ourselves in the 
pages that follow is not to be thought of lightly, 
nor has it been assumed by us that it was one of 
little responsibility. For to us has been given the sacred 
privilege of recording for ourselves and posterity a com- 
plete episode in the life of a great institution, of enthroning 
upon the pedestal of time a statue to the measureless joys 
of youth and the incalculable benefits of a college life. 
To our brothers in the bonds of Smith who have gone 
on before — these pages must reawaken in you memories 
which are at once, bitter and sweet, happy and sad. To 
those of us who yet remain within these sacred portals — 
they must bring the realization that we are heirs to a 
fortune which is immune alike to the ravages of time and 
the avarice of man. To you who must come after us — may 
they serve to instill in your hearts that love for our school 
that must characterize the life of every true Smith man. 

So with a full consciousness of the enormity of our 
task we have approached it with that respect to which it 
is entitled. We have pursued our several duties diligently, 
to the end that the 1931 BULL may truly depict the 1931 
Smith. How well we have succeeded is for you. who 
through change or intent peruse these pages, to judge. 
From the 1931 Bull staff there is no apology, we have 
done our best. 


































Dean Theophilus E. McKinney 













Dedication 

IN grateful admission, sincere appreciation, 
and hearty congratulations for the work 
accomplished in the making of Johnson 
C. Smith University a more thorough insti- 
tution of learning, a more distinct landmark 
in the field of Negro education, we the staff 
of the 1931 BULL respectfully dedicate this, 
the culmination of our efforts, to Dean 
Theophilus E. McKinney.

The Dean's Message 






As we peruse the pages of this book we look into 
the faces of red-blooded American men. Men who repre- 
sent the ambitions and the hopes of many anxious mothers, 
fathers, sisters, brothers, sweethearts, relatives and friends. 

Here at Johnson C. Smith University men enjoy the 
association and contact of the best minds in their genera- 
tion. This association is inestimable. All of them are in 
college during the same generation. In the same generation 
they will labor and in the same generation they will pass 
off the scene of action. No matter in what section of the 
country one of these men may go after spending four years 
here, he will find some one there who knows him either 
personally or indirectly. So long as these men live they 
will enjoy genuine friendships that were formed during 
their college days. 

This institution is Christian. Here students have an 
opportunity to deepen their spiritual lives. The chief aim 
is to instill in those who are permitted to enter, those basic 
qualities that make for the best and highest in manhood 
and citizenship. 

The great hope of the faculty is that each man will 
reflect in his daily life the principles for which the institu- 
tion stands and for which it is so faithfully and prayerfully 
laboring.

Helena, Ark. 

"Go not abroad; retire into thyself, for truth 
dwells in the inner man." 

Folks! Meet the one, and only one. "Bloody." 
"Bloody" has one abiding weakness and that is 
his love for the enrapturing arms of Morpheus. 
He is a ladies' man. Well, why not? He em- 
bodies all the good qualities that the fair ones 
could desire in a young "prince Charming." 
"Bloody" is a good student. It requires very lit- 
tle study for him to do well in his studies. We 
give him our best wishes and he may be assured 
that no one will ever forget old "Bloody."

"To seek responsibilities rather than honor. 
To share the joys and sorrows of others. 
To love for Love's sake." 

"Joe" is a great advocate of better "math" and 
more of it. He plans to improve "The Auxiliary 
Theorem." Go to it "Joe." much luck to you. 



EDWARD R. AVANT 
Omega Psi Phi Fraternity 
AB. — Major in History 

Durham, N. C. 

We've often wondered how it is possible for 
an ordinary person to talk as much as "Brer" 
does, but after getting better acquainted with him 
we discovered that it makes very little difference 
to him whether he actually has something to say 
or not. His only worry is being able to find a 
listening ear. He takes to one branch of athletics, 
pushing his best in basketball. We lose a good 
man that the world might gain.

"He that keepeth his mouth keepeth his life; but 
he that openeth wide his lips shall have destruc- 
tion." 

"Chauf" or "Little Bit" is another one of 
those Easterners who is always talking about 
Fayettevillc. The village has a magnetic attrac- 
tion for him; he is often seen with "G. B.," 
his henchman, headed in that direction.

may lay to that. He has the "gift of gab" and 

joviality. During his college career, he has won 
the distinction of being the Grand Scribe of the 

Order of Prevaricators. Once you know him you

"Wisdom cannot be exaggerated; it is the highest 
achievement of life. Truth is the breath of life 
to human society. It is the food of the im- 
mortal spirit, yet, a single word of it may kill 
a man, as suddenly as a drop of prussic acid." 

Edward is one of those persons who always 
see the silver lining in every cloud.

"No man is fit to be entrusted with the control of

no people, who are indifferent to their past, 
need hope to make their future great." 

"Few Times" came to us straight from the 
heart of Georgia. He is one of those lads whom 
"maidens" turn around to look at. and say "isn't 
he grand?" "Few Times" is a historian, and 
plans to write a book entitled "Life and Times

Greenville. As a student of Philosophy, he is in- 
terested in the Scientific Method. 



WILLIAM H. FLETCHER

"The honorer of greatness, a participant of pride, 
and a lover of beauty." 

From the very outset, we want you to know 
that "Bill" is a lover of the fairer sex, the ladies 
man; one ventures to say he is unsurpassable. 
Even from the time he was in hither Gaul, one 
saw in him the makings of an artist: he would 
make Raphael bow his head in shame were he a 
contemporary. To know him is to like him.

"Men of few words are best of men." 

Charleston has given quite a few men to Smith. 
We were unusually lucky to receive this lad whom 
we later called "Mon." "Mon" came here from 
Bricks College where he was a star athlete. He 
has done credit to his school and to himself by 
the earnest work he has done in two of our 
major sports, football and basketball. His suc- 
cess in the future is assured for success and work

"Jeff" is an athlete of no small degree. "Little

penalty, was on Smith's 2-yard line, you could 
hear Captain Henry's cry to his men. "On Bleed- 
ing Hands and Knees." and Howard did not score. 
Thus Smith won 19-6 in the Fall of '29. He is 
efficient in math, which is no sop. Is he a lover?

"Greta" hails from the thriving metropolis of 
Durham, but we do not hold that against him. 
His is. indeed, no common clay. He is a brilliant 
student, a yard- wide, full-fledged good fellow; one 
who always finds the cheerful side of life. His 
proficiency with the typewriter is only exceeded 
by his poetical ability.

"My sympathy for my own sex increases in direct 
proportion with my knowledge of the opposite 
sex." 

"King Tut" is from S'oth C'lina. but would 
have you believe that he is from "Pbilly." We 
do not know why, but there must be some good 
reason for his continual "crowing" about Harbison. 
Perhaps he can explain this. "Tut" is always 
complaining about "bad breaks." Nevertheless he 
is a jolly good fellow, much luck to him in love.

Will and Testament 



ill and bequeath our love and appreciation 
.ind especially that part which we ourselves 



rk that 



Stale of North Carolina 
County of Mecklenburg. 
City of Charlotte. 

We the Senior Class of 1931 being fully aware of the fact that our days of joy and 
sorrow at our dear institution must soon terminate and that, ere a few days, and we shall 
"join the innumerable caravan, which moves to that mysterious realm." and in order to 
prevent any legal controversies, after our decease, over our enormous accumulations, do seiz: 
this moment to make our final testament. 

The Class of 1931 of Johnson C. Smith University, claiming full health of body and 
mind and believing ourselves absolutely capable of making provisions for the future disposition 
of all our worldly belongings, do declare this our last Will and Testament and render null 
and void any wills by us at any time heretofore made. Such accumulations and estate as it 
has pleased kind fate to bestow upon us we dispose of as follows: 

It is our wish that all expenses incurred through our burial services be met by the 
money that we were to have received from home but never did. 

Our beloved parents shall be the recipients of our heartfelt congratulations that they are 
at last rid of a troublesome proposition; one which has been the cause of many days of labor 
and great sacrifice — for which unselfish cooperation and needful assistance do we on this day 
arrange for a conscientious endeavor to so shape our hereafter that it will cause their old age 
to be a period of joy and contentment. 

To our dear Alma Mater, that has so effectively served humanity during the three score 
and four years of its existence, we on our departure make the following pledge: That so long 
as it remains Johnson C. Smith University, for men only, we promise it our unwavering 
loyalty and support. 

We do will and bequeath to the Board of Trustees our thanks for all that they have 
done for the development of the Institution. 

To Dr. Henry Lawrence McCrory we do 
for his long and useful service to the University 
have fortunately partaken of. 

We do bequeath to Dr. John M. Gaston our sincere thanks for the great 
he has done in the interest of the University and for our welfare. 

To Dean T. E. McKinney we express our indebtedness for his sound and i 
counsel on the many problems that have confronted us during our college days. 

To our cherished faculty who have never misused an opportunity to flunk us — but who 
stand shoulder to shoulder with us in believing our Alma Mater the greatest in all the land — 
we will, devise and bequeath our sincere thanks for the knowledge they have imparted to us 

The teachers of our number pass on wholeheartedly to the budding teachers of the Junior 
Class the blunt uncompromising truth that the most difficult problem in the whole field of 
education is to construct a graph that will lead you to a job. 

The omniscient Sophs are to be the possessors ol our unreserved commission to lav 
aside their pestering ways and become sensible. 

The athletes, debaters, writers, artists and scholars of our number « 
any and all worthy successors. 

To all who may come after us we offer congratulations tinged w 
may possibly be able to enjoy a decent meal in the dining hall, a dance 
and to have access to the library at convenient hours — luxuries that wei 
our stay in this earthly realm of petty restrictions. 

We do hereby appoint and constitute the President ol the lirst National Bank of Char 
lotte. in which our savings are deposited, and the Chief of Police lo execute this our 1 asl Will 
and Testament. 

In testimony whereof we the Class ol 1931 have lo this our last Will and Testament 
set our hands and seal this, the twenty-six day of May Anno Domini one thousand nine 
hundred and thirty-one.

Debating 

Debating has for many years rated high among the extra- 
curricula activities at Johnson C. Smith University. This year 
was no exception to the rule and as it closes we note that the bone 
of contention has been gnawed clean by the Smith debaters and 
their opponents. 

In the discussions this year every possible effort was made to 
choose subjects that are instructive and interesting to the debaters 
and audience. A consideration of the questions discussed reveals 
the fact that this object was approximated to a very marked degree.

THE UNEMPLOYMENT QUESTION 

From the economic condition that has prevailed throughout 
America and other capitalized countries during the last twenty 
months, and from the unfavorable criticism that has been made 
against the present system of production, and the claim made by 
persons — who are more or less socialistic in their views — that this 
capitalized system of industry is responsible for these alternating 
periods of acute unemployment, the question evolved. Resolved: 
That the present unemployment situation is an inherent weakness 
in the capitalistic system. 

THE INDIAN QUESTION 

Persons who are interested in international affairs cannot help 
but notice the agitated condition of India. The Nationalistic move- 
ment — the passive resistance or "Soul Force" used by Mahatma 
Gandi — in defiance of certain British laws has certainly presented a 

Page Seventy-one 









new and delicate problem for England to solve. From this situation 
evolved the question. Resolved: That India should be granted com- 
plete independence. 

BLUEFIELD— SMITH 

The debating season opened i for Smith ) on Friday evening, 
February 24, 1931, with Smith appearing at Bluefield Institute. 
Bluefield. West Virginia. The unemployment question was us_'d 
in this discussion. Mr. W. H. Parries. Mr. R. M. Smith and Mr. 
W. H. Gray of Bluefield Institute upheld the affirmative, while 
Mr. E. C. Grigg. Jr.. Mr. M. H. Boulware and Mr. S. H. Travis 
spoke for Johnson C. Smith on the negative. This debate was 
very interesting as well as instructive. This was a non-decision 
debate. 

LINCOLN— SMITH 

On February 4. 1931, Johnson C. Smith appeared at Lincoln 
University and upheld the affirmative of the proposition. Resolved; 
That the present unemployment situation is an inherent weakness 
in the modern capitalistic system. Mr. E. C. Grigg, Jr., Mr. M. H. 
Boulware and Mr. S. H. Travis were the speakers for Smith. Lin 
coin was represented by Mr. F. A. Decosta. Mr. Desumee Johnson 
and Mr. H. T. Cromwell. Lincoln was given the decision in the 
contest and thus avenged herself for last year's defeat by Smith. 






WILBERFORCE— SMITH 

On March 21. 1931. Johnson C. Smith will be visited by 
Wilberforce University. This intersectional contest is expected to 
be very interesting. 
















II 



PENTAGONAL LEAGUE 

For several years Smith has been a member of the Pentagonal 
Debating League. The proposition to be us;d by the League this 
year is. Resolved; That India should be granted complete independ- 
ence. Smith opponents this year are Knoxville College at Johnson 
C Smith and Talladega College at Talladega, Alabama. 



SOUTH CAROLINA STATE— SMITH 

The annual neutral-ground debate between State and Smith 
will be held this year at Charleston. S. C. The proposition to be 
used is, Resolved; That India should be granted complete inde- 
pendence. 

DEBATERS' CLUB 

Debating at Smith is controlled by the Debaters' Club. Mem- 
bership into the club is granted only by competitive tryouts held 
not later than the first of November of each year. Contestants that 
show ability in the preliminaries are accepted into the club, and 
from the Debaters' Club the members of the various teams are 
chosen.

Scene From: 'THE POT -BOILERS 



The Little Theatre 

On the first day of October in the year of our Lord, one thousand nine 
hundred and thirty the class in English 114 under Professor Timothy C. 
Meyers formed of themselves a permanent organization with the following 
offices held bv the men named. President. J. H. Griffin. '32; Vice-President. 
E. R. Dudley. '12: Secretary, E. C. Grigg. Jr.. '12: Recording Secretary. J. D. 
Powell. '12: Business Manager. C. A. Walker. '11; Caretaker, J. W. Martin. 
11: Publicity Manager. W. F. Alexander. '12. 

The express purpose of this organization was the production of plays 
suited to a Little Theatre group on as systematic a basis and in as business 
like manner as possible. Accordingly, the group began work on two one-ac 
plays, a comedy ( "The Pot Boiler") and a tragedy ("Your Fiery Furnace") 
Under the leadership of W. F. Fletcher. 11. Stage Designer, and J. D. Powell 
12. and E. R. Dudley. 12. Stage Managers, the scenery for both plays was 
built entirely by the group. The first milestone in the theatrical career ot the 
group was reached on December 12. 1910. when, under the directorship of 
E. C. Grigg. Jr.. '12. and Thebaud Jeffers. 11. respectively, the "Pot Boiler" 
and "Your Fiery Furnace" were presented in Biddle Memorial Hall. 

The Little Theatre class is at present preparing for production, a four-act 
tragedy "Justice" by John Galsworthy. Present plans call for a short tour 
before the presentation oi the play on the University campus in the late spring.

Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity 

Founder at Cornell University, 1906 

ALPHA OMICRON CHAPTER 
Established at Johnson C. Smith University. 1923 

"The organization of the Greek letter fraternity among Negro college 
men has been one of the inevitable results of the development of college life 
among Negroes in America. College fraternities have been the special develop- 
ments of the college and university life of the United States and Canada. 
Relationships may be noted with the fraternal organizations and the convoca- 
tions of the Middle Ages and with the corps of German universities in the 
modern period. The underlying basis for their organization is found in two 
fundamental attractions for youth through all the ages: the comradeship which 
youth craves and finds for itself; and the spirit of high idealism which youth 
has been ever willing to follow."

The football season of 19 30 presents an enigma to Smith that will prob- 
ably never be solved. Exactly the same material which won positive success 
in the previous season, strengthened by a few men of ability, and coached under 
almost the same conditions, was unable to make a record to approach that of 
the preceding year. The season was a mystery. There was an element some- 
where which conceived failure— an element which some attempted to attribute 
to the coaching, others to a lack of training, others to factions among the 
players, and still others to different causes or a combination of causes. That 
there was an element of failure was evident; its true nature was concealed. 

In the opening game of the season against North Carolina State College, 
Smith won. under the flood lights of Durham. North Carolina, by a 13-7 
score. Her supporters expected a walk away. The next game with Virginia 
State College ended in a 6-6 tie. This game was a surprise as a defeat had been 
predicted by many followers. 

Then followed in rapid succession a 0-0 tie with South Carolina State. 
On November first, a slight reaction set in. and Smith, through pure 
determination, won over Virginia Seminary, 6-0. 

Fisk University swamped the Bulls by a 21-7 score, the following Satur- 
day in Nashville, Tennessee, while only a week later the Bulls journeyed to 
Greensboro. North Carolina, to be content with a 0-0 tie with A. « T. College. 
The final defeat of the season was administered by Lincoln University 
in our annual Home Coming game. The 6-0 score indicates an interesting 
combat. 

Finally, on Thanksgiving, in Salisbury. North Carolina, eleven Smith 
men. with a record of doubt behind them, almost balanced that debit of ties 
and defeats, and contributed their part in probably the greatest chapter of the 
Smith-Livingstone Classic for many a moon. 

In a post season game, in Asheville. North Carolina, the Bulls subdued 
a fighting Knoxville College eleven by a score of 13-7. 
The season remains a mystery. 

"Red" Ellis. Frank Bogle and John Massey were the stars of the season. 
Many members of the team will receive their degrees in June, including "Beef" 
Martin and "Red" Ellis, two exponents of all that football can expect. A 
wealth of material is still on hand. 

What will be made from it remains to be seen. 

Page One Hundred Nine 



The basketball season is almost a repetition of the football story. Material was abundant, 
composed of the previous year's five, all the scrubs and a few new candidates. 

A handicap was encountered at the beginning of the season, as five first string men were 
banned from opening games on account of scholarship difficulties. 

Later in the season these men were reinstated as a result of semester examinations only 
to be discharged by the cage mentor. 

As a result of this action. Captain Avant. Tucker and Gillard were the only vets left 
to bolster the squad through a heavy C. I. A. A. schedule. 

Avant led his team in scoring, while Mitchell. Tucker and Gillard helped bear the brunt 
of the burden through an indifferent season.

Outstanding Players 



Clj^Ss^ 

























The Pig Skin season of 1930 marked the return of the Golden Bulls to 
C. I. A. A. competition. There was only one defeat recorded in the confer- 
ence, but the abundancy of tie games, and two non-conference set backs, sent 
the Bulls a far distance down the percentage column. 

The team was well balanced with no outstanding stars as of the season 
of 1929. 

Bogle at guard was again chosen on the All-American and as well placed 
on the All-C. I. A. A. first team. 

Bogle's work at guard was far below the standard, however. Jonnie 
was a terror in the eyes and minds of opposing linemen. "Red" Ellis was 
placed on the second CIA. A. All-Star eleven as well as second All-Southern. 

A hard plunging back was discovered in Massey who had played end 
heretofore. Hog Bear ran hard and low. being largely responsible for most 
of the ground gaining of the backs. 

"Red" Williams, veteran triple threat, was off form at times, with occa- 
sional flashes of his uncanny broken field running. 

"Beef" Martin with the responsibility of captain and field general did 
not share in the spot light, but gave his best in the directing of the team from 
the signal barking position. 

The passing of the thirty season marked the close of the career of many 
loyal grid warriors. Among these stars slated to pass in June are-: Jack 
"Beef" Martin. "Chic" Walker. "Jeff" Henry. "Ed" Jones. "Hog Bear" 
Massey. "Mon" Gillard. "Prof" Foulkes. "Red" Williams and "Red" Ellis. 
It will be hard to fill the shoes of these stars each of whom has at one time or 
another shared the spot light of the sporting arena 

Avant. flashy Bull forward, again led the squad in individual honors, 
while Gillard and Mitchell were important cogs in the cage machinery. 

We can only offer our prediction as to the outcome of the National 
pastime season. The squad is engaged in daily workouts, ironing out kinks 
in preparation for the season opening, which will be played after we have gone 
to press. 

The aces in person of Walker. Williams, LJlis. Lindsay. Massey. Ramseur. 
Biggs. Dunn and McDowell are all in the bull pen. along with a wealth of 
new material to choose from. 

We feel safe in predicting a champion conference team this season.
